IGNOU is realizing the dream of education
Srinagar. Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) is playing a vital role in providing education to remote villages in Jammu. Those who do not have money to get formal education or who have not got admission in degree colleges are taking admission in IGNOU to realize their dream of higher education. IGNOU Regional In-Charge Director Jammu Dr. Sandeep said that due to strict implementation of quality education, curriculum and programme, we have been able to win the credibility and trust of the students.
77 percent students enrolled in IGNOU Jammu under various programs in the year 2021-22 are from rural areas, which clearly shows that IGNOU is gaining popularity in remote and inaccessible areas of the region. According to Dr. Sandeep, IGNOU over the years has lived up to the expectations of the weaker sections of the society in providing quality education across the country. SC and ST students are also exempted from admission fee for many programmes. The university has made the study material of various programs available in digital form. Students who want to take digital material instead of hard copy are also given 15 percent rebate in program fee. (IANS)
